Exuberantly written, immensely practical reference presents a kaleidoscopic panorama of clothing styles worn in period covering the last years of George III to latter part of Victorias reign. Charming descriptions and illustrations of such authentic outfits as a French court dress (1818), Garibaldi shirt (1861), evening dress (1865) , as well as tennis, hockey, golfing and cycling costumes; underclothing, headgear, and much more. Immensely valuable survey for students of fashion history, costume and design, as well as theatrical and motion picture producers. 200 b/w illustrations and twenty seven full color drawings.
